Alms House Window Replacement

We were approached by a local housing association to assist them with this alms house window replacement project due to its sensitivity.  Spicer homes is a block of 16 properties that are all occupied by elderly residents and, as such, a great deal of thought and care had to go into the planning of the works. The property is Grade II listed which required additional attention with regards to design and detailing of and around the windows.


We carried out an initial survey of the property 6 months prior to the proposed commencement date. With numerous meetings with the housing association, the residents and the conservation officer we ensured that everyone was happy with the final design. The existing windows were single glazed, Crittal windows and needed to be replaced with a double glazed alternative for the houses to achieve an improved thermal efficiency. To ensure that the alms houses maintained the same appearance, double glazed windows were manufactured by Crittal. The modern looking steel frames have added a stylish replacement without losing any of the buildings original character. In addition the residents will notice that there is far heat loss during the winter months. They have already noticed a huge reduction in condensation and outside noise levels have been dramatically reduced.

Customer Satisfaction

On completion of the works, each resident was given a customer satisfaction questionnaire to complete and we scored 100% in all areas which we are extremely proud of and is a credit to the management team on this project.  We also received a letter from the housing association, thanking us for not receiving any complaints whilst the project was carried out and a job well done!
